Tige 22Ve 2011

Wakeboard Boat Review

The 2011 Tige 22Ve wakeboard boat has plenty of pedigree. Its 24-foot-long sibling is the official tow boat of the Tige Pro-Am Wakeboard Championships, and Tige's Ve series boats have been towing Team Tige riders like Erik Ruck, Nick Weinacker and Daniel Watkins for years. With its sprawling 102-inch beam and balanced floor plan, the Tige 22Ve seats up to 14 passengers and boasts more than enough storage and stylish amenities to keep your family or crew comfortable all day long. While the Tige 22Ve's traditional bow lends the boat a classic look, this 22-footer is anything but old-school. In fact, standard features like the iPhone-inspired TigeTouch keep the Tige 22Ve firmly on the cutting edge.

The Tige 22Ve is the best wakeboard boat for you if: You want a classically styled wakeboard boat with proven, pro-level performance.

How to max it out: Add flare and function with Tige's Alpha Z tower and spinning board racks; ride the same wakes as Tige pro riders Adam Errington, Erik Ruck and Daniel Watkins with the 2,000-pound Pro factory ballast system; and get out of the hole in an instant with the new 6-liter ZR450 450 horsepower engine.
